Help me set up a system to make PDFs available from our corporate network to our users' iPads.

I work for a professional services firm. Our staff often visit clients. They want to be able to load PDFs of useful documents onto their iPads, so they can refer to them when speaking to clients.
I've tried putting the files in a Sharepoint folder and having the users access them via Citrix, but they tell me this isn't very user-friendly.
I've also thought of using DropBox.
My other option would be to have them download the files from the Sharepoint folder to their desktop, then copy them to the iPad. If I understand right, the iPad doesn't have USB ports, so they'd need a special lead?
Are there any other obvious options that I have missed? Bonus question, can anyone suggest the best iPad apps to read and manage PDFs (I know about GoodReader).
